Amidst the sound of shattered glass, Detective Ronan O’Connor falls to his death, his body crumpled on the pavement below the broken window. But this is only the beginning of his story in Murdered: Soul Suspect, which launches on PS4 and PS3 this week.
In Murdered: Soul Suspect, players take control of Ronan — a troubled detective with a messy past — moments after his own murder. Now as his spirit wanders through the purgatorial world of the Dusk, players must help Ronan harness his newfound supernatural abilities and solve the mystery behind his own untimely demise. But the town of Salem has a dark history as well, and answering Ronan’s questions won’t be easy — especially with hungry demons prowling the afterlife.
Murdered isn’t the only big new game on the block, however. War Thunder is also launching on PS4 this week, and PlayStation Vita Pets is coming to Vita for a more light-hearted gaming experience. You can never have too many puppies.
For a complete list of games coming to PlayStation on Tuesday, read on. And enjoy the Drop!
